CHURCHES are causing a bit of a stir at the moment. The three piece band for Glasgow are sure to appear on a lot of ‘hot for 2013 lists’. Their dark electronic dance music is appealing for the critics and the masses. The band are fronted by Lauren Mayberry who has one of the sweetest voices I have ever heard front such heavy music. She sounds a little bit like she should be on Disney TV but that’s no bad thing, it makes CHURCHES distinguishable from the mess of other bands making similar music. Another thing which makes them distinguishable is that the songs are actually really good. Particually ‘The Mother we Share’
The band are currently on tour with Passion Pit and Chad Valley despite only playing their debut gig in July of this year. The sound of 2013? Maybe, but maybe this stuff has been done too many times before.
